Good e-Reader is proud to rollout a new build to the Android App Store Client that offers a number of new features and enhancements. The client now has over 123,000 Apps and has received positive feedback from many of our distribution partners.
We have amended the home screen to be optimized for large screen devices, such as the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9, Kobo Arc 10 HD and many others. There is a series of featured images we have and we have spent quite a bit of time tweaking it to look good both on smartphones and tablets. The final change on the home screen was adding a brand new category “Essential Apps.” These are the apps every new device needs to have, such as Adobe Reader, Flash, ES File Explorer and many others.
The last major change on this brand new update was solving some of the crashing issues we have been having. This new version now works and users should not encounter any situation that the client force closes. One of the bugs was switching from landscape to portrait mode on large screen tablets. We have since locked it to portrait mode only for the next while, as we iron out any of the kinks.
The Good e-Reader App Store had over 100,000 downloads of our client since we issued it two years ago. We recognize that most people don’t want to be tied into one ecosystem and like choices. Our app store is a perfect compliment to Amazon or Google. You can download it today for free HERE.
